Letter #-02-
published in the 1980s
by Edna Drexler

After my aunt, Ruth Komis, died in the fall of 2002, I found that she had collected and pasted so now very faded news clippings from the The Jimplicute, Scott City, MO, and pasted them on pages which she was keeping writings of her mother, Edna Drexler.
These documents are very difficult to read because they are so faded.
However, I have been retyping them into documents and making them available to other family members by posting them on this Internet page.
Many include memories from the very early 1900s of Scott City.

Letter #-01- published in the 1980s by Edna Drexler

  • Letter to the Editor

    The Jimplicute

    Scott City, MO 63754


    Dear Editor,

    It may interest your readers, especially those who remember Ruth Drexler Komis as a teacher in Scott City and in Sikeston, in the letter she received awarding a special honor to her daughter, Ann Komis (Rohrbacher).

    The letter congratulated Ruth and Jim Komis for the election of Ann as an outstanding young woman of America for the year 1983.

    The purpose of the organization, Oustanding Young Women of America, is to give recognition to the many young people like Ann who give their time, talent, and unselfish service to enrich the quality of American life. The Board of Advisors (George Washington University, Daughters of American Revolution, General Federation of Women’s Clubs, University of American Women, National Federation of Business and Professional Women and others) selected Ann from thousands of nominations by respected business and civic leaders throughout the country.

    The Outstanding Young Women of America are selected each year. In the 1983 edition of the young women chosen there will be a biographical sketch of Ann. Ann is a CBS news anchor person on WEHT, Channel 25 Television Station, Evansville, Indiana.

    Sincerely yours,

    Edna Drexler
